the tragedy in benghazi that cost the lives of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. john kerry, a long-time member of the senate, head of the foreign relations committee, will have no problem winning confirmation of that body. that will reconclude a fight there. that was a fight the president really didn't want to have this early in what will be his second term. so we expect the nomination to come later today. whether or not the president announces it himself we have yet to hear. back to you. jenna: wendell goler, thank you. jon: let's talk about all this with chris wallace. he is of course the anchor of "fox news sunday". maybe the worst-kept secret in washington. everybody expected it was going to be john kerry. what does he bring to this post, chris? >> well he certainly brings experience. he has been a member of the senate a long time. he is chairman as wendell said of the senate foreign relations committee. he seems to have a good working relationship between president obama and his national security team. in fact obama has used him several times as a personal envoy to dea
country areas, you are doing it at your own risk. martha: this fox news alert. the benghazi attack fallout. right now on capitol hill senators are grilling top state department officials following a blistering report that faulted management primarily at the state department for inadequate security at our american consulate and september the 11th. at least one state department staffer has been shown the door. a lot of folks are asking if that is token firing than something with much more far receiving issues. three others we're told could soon follow in terms of heads that may roll at the state department. bring in chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live at capitol hill this morning. catherine, what are we expecting in this hearing today? >> reporter: good morning, martha and thank you. really a key piece not addressed in this report is the policy piece, the administration's piece. why was it the obama administration favored light security footprint in benghazi when it was clearly in conflict with the intelligence picture on the ground? there were 20 documented threats or i
benghazi. does this end the debate over that. >> republicans frankly say. no they still have questions about what senator clinton and the president knew about security at the consulate and about the attack and when did they know it. but they made clear in a news conference today that a a susan rice confirmation hearing would have been bitter because of her insistence a week after the attack that it grew out of the protest of anti-islam movie. >> i just did not believe that our country is going to be well-served by people who i, quite frankly, didn't trust. and susan rice, let's just get to the heart of the matter, i don't question her character or prism. i just thought that he was very eager to tell a story that did not make a lot of sense. >> lawmakers say they still want to hear from secretary of state clinton before voting on the kerry confirmation but it's democrats on the committee who will schedule the confirmation date. harris? >> harris: wendell goler outside the white house tonight. thank you very much. we are getting new information tonight about a possible motive for the att
senator john kerry to be the next secretary of state with their views on kerry, benghazi, obama's foreign policy. we will be talking with fox his national security analyst k. t. mcfarland, former ambassador john bolton, and today the national rifle association exactly one week after the sandy hook school massacre has come up with a proposal for securing every school in this country, and it is such an obvious solution, so simple it immediately raises the question, why didn't anyone else think of it? well, we begin tonight with the fiscal cliff, justin days from the largest tax hike in american history was no movement toward a fiscal cliff deal more in the action in the house or senate. the responsibility now to avoid massive taxes and draconian spending cuts resting squarely on the president. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> just as our economy is really startingo recover and starting to see optimistic signs and we have seen actually some upside to from a wole range of areas, including two from including housing, now is not the time for more self-inflic
on the benghazi terror attack on our u.s. consulate there. joining me now, former u.n. ambassador to the united nations, john bolton and a fox news contributor. good to have you with us this afternoon. secretary clinton is still recovering from her illness and of course will prevent her from travelling abroad, but it will allow her to testify next month in an open congressional hearing on the september 11th attack on benghazi. what do you think her testimony will reveal about the events leading up to the attack, during and afterwards? >> of course, it depends on how well the hearings are prepared by members of congress, they need to give up their opening statements, they need to ask questions, not make their own statements. they need to coordinate to divide up responsibility because this is, this is an opportunity that's only going to come once and if they're making their own statements or duplicating their questions we're going to find out a lot less. i think the areas of inquiry fall into three categories, number one, what did the secretary know before the september 11th attacks about request
department is that they don't get funded for embassy security and consulate security like in benghazi. kerry can bring his enormous prestige as a senator for many years to get that funding. he's almost become president and foreign leaders respect him and the most important element, richard is his relationship with the president. it's a strong one. he's carried out a lot of missions for president obama and iraq and afghanistan, so i think it's an exceptional appointment and he'll sail through. he is an exceptional appointment. i think another asset that he has is the major challenges he's going to face. he has experience in them, stopping iran from getting a nuclear weapon. restarting the middle east peace negotiations and dealing with a hostile north korea. finding ways to deal with the arab spring, the explosions there. he is so qualified in so many areas to deal with those crises. >> governor, you brought the issue of benghazi, with that still as an overhang right now waiting for secretary clinton to speak to lawmakers on the hill with secretary of state kerry, will that then be mitigated?
statements after the attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi in libya when she said the violence started over anger about an anti-muslim film. the attack now known to be terror, killed u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens and three other americans. in five minutes we're going to talk about now who is in the running to be the next secretary of state. i think the short list is down to essentially one. >> there will be a funeral service in st. louis today for dallas cowboys football player jerry brown. he died in a suspected drunk driving accident on saturday. his teammate and friend josh brent was behind the wheel. police releasing this new video of the wreck as well as 911 calls they received in the moments after it happened. >> i don't know. i just drove past it. it's like it just happened. the car was up side down and there was smoke everywhere. >> josh brent is free on $500,000 bail. he's facing intoxication manslaughter charges. >> philadelphia police are searching for two young men involved in a shooting aboard an elevated train. this incident caught on tape. video captured a confrontat
the benghazi controversy. what can we expect? susan estrich, a professor of political signs at usc, does it matter that john kerry was not the president's first choice? >> it doesn't matter at all. the issue with kerry from the get-go was not confidential or qualifications, not loyalty to president obama after all. he endorsed him in the primaries, the issue was a guy named scott brown, who is a former republican senators from massachusetts, narrowly lost his race to elizabeth warren and now what we'll have, there will be a temporary appointment and a special election in massachusetts. and, scott brown, notwithstanding my home state is democrat, is leading all the democrats, and the issue with kerry, it would cost a democratic seat, likely in the senate. >> rick: i want to go back to the idea the president badly wanted sutures rice to be the next secretary of state and made no secret about it and she had to go and withdraw her name from consideration. now, assuming john kerry wins confirmation, we'll talk about the process in a minute, does it matter if a secretary kerry is sitting down
